Ashraf Ghani named official winner of Afghan election

Ashraf Ghani won Afghanistan’s disputed presidential election decisively with 55 percent of the vote, results revealed yesterday, after the figure was kept secret for five days over concerns that fraud allegations could trigger violence.

Dr. Ghani insisted that corruption was a major barrier to implement reforms and bring changes and evolution in the country as was promised by his team.

He warned that his government will take strict measures against all those who are involved in corruption.

The remark by Dr. Ghani comes as Afghanistan was placed among the three nations with the world’s highest degree of corruption by the Berlin-based corruption watchdog – Transparency International.

Corruption has been one of the main issues of the Afghan government during the past 13 years under the leadership of President Hamid Karzai.

In the meantime, Dr. Ghani pledged that he will take all necessary measures for the national unity under his leadership to ensure peace and stability in the country.

He called on all Afghan businessmen to invest in the country in a bid to turn Afghanistan into an investment capital in the region.
